delivery. The time taken to clear goods through customs
can be affected by Government policy, X-raying of goods,
physical inspection, volume of traffic and the levy of any
import duties or taxes. Charges raised by customs or
quarantine officials will be paid for by our Britannia

prior to delivery.
